Zhang Huan: Altered States
NEW YORK  •  Asia Society  •  Ongoing

Zhang Huan: Altered States includes 55 of the artistís major works produced over the past 15 years in Beijing, New York, and Shanghai, including photographs and sculpture.

Born in 1965 in An Yang, Henan Province, China, Zhang Huan is best-known for his controversial early works in performance art. When he began his career in Beijing, his performances focused on physical endurance, pushing the limits of what was acceptable to authorities in the early 1990s, post-Tiananmen. The exhibition is curated by Melissa Chiu, Director of the Museum, Asia Society.
